Atlantic 10 Tournament 2012, Saint Joseph's Vs. Charlotte Final Score: Hawks Hold Off 49ers, Advance To 2nd Round

The Charlotte 49ers pulled within three points of the Saint Joseph's Hawks on an E. Victor Nickerson 3-pointer with 7:05 left in the second half. The Niners wouldn't get any closer, however, as the Hawks smothered and outscored the Niners 17-4 over the remaining minutes of regulation.

Carl Jones led the Hawks in their 80-64 win in the first round of the 2012 Atlantic 10 Tournament, scoring 23 points on 7-for-11 shooting from the field, and 3-of-4 from beyond the 3-point arc. Halil Kanacevic played a pivotal role on the boards, helping the Hawks to a 40-26 rebounding advantage with 11 of his own. He added 16 points including an emphatic dunk for the Saint Joseph's final field goal of the game.

Langston heated up in the second half, scoring 15 of his 18 points after intermission. He also chipped in eight rebounds to the cause. The Hawks advance to the second round of the tournament, where they will face the 4-seed St. Bonaventure Bonnies on Friday.
